Technifast Non-Standard Dowel Pin Service

CORBY 3rd April 2018: Technifast provides a specialist dowel-pin service, now offering dowels with longer lengths up to 120mm on diameters below 5mm.  Their machining capabilities allow for the production of dowels up to 32mm diameter, giving the option to add features such as flats and Circlip grooves, or internal /external threads.  The company specialises in production of stainless steel dowels to grades A2 and A4, and also has vast experience working with through-hardened steel and mild steel unhardened.

Not all standard dowel pins are appropriate for demanding applications or specialist projects, and it can be difficult to source the exact dowel for specific applications.  Technifast recognise this and their custom-made dowels have already formed an integral part of diverse products from toy trains and surgical instruments, through to audio visual technology and marine leisure appliances.

Managing Director Louis Speed comments, “The ability to provide our customers with a custom-made dowel pin solution is one of the reasons we consider ourselves to be at the forefront of this specialist service.  There is no ‘fit-all’ solution for fasteners, so it is important we are able to offer our customers a product tailored to their unique requirements.  The continued investment in our machining capabilities is allowing us to produce a greater field of dowel pin solutions.”

Technifast is an ISO:9001 registered company, underpinning their reliability to monitor and manage quality across all their operations.
